Who: Chalk and Numbers. Singing-songwriting Brooklyn duo Sable Yong and Andrew Pierce just self-released their first EP, He Knew, in January. “Our music is inspired by the pop bands of the past that we love, like the Beach Boys and Dusty Springfield,” they tell us.

Reminds us of: Dusty Springfield indeed, but also updates on the genre like Vivian Girls
